A little off-topic


I would like to ask the admins of LQ what kind of forum is used for this site?
I want to set up a similar forum on my dorms' server and I was wondering what would be the best ideea.

I am using debian woody with a few backports (opendchub, etc.) and I'm not afraid of making one myself (opendchub was _realy_ trivial) a backport, but if there is no debian based solution, I will install from source or alien-ise a rpm.

it looks really nice and I would like the mods too, if they (admins) would like to give'em to me...

Promise I won't make a site that competes with this one (as I said before..)

This forum is an extremely hacked vbulletin board. Jeremy can give you more detail, but suffice to say, this is a pretty unique setup.

This version of vBulletin was not free and as XavierP stated, the site admin has had this site up for almost 4 years now, in which he's customized this site himself, alot of the features here do not come with vBulletin. They do have a lite free version but you might be better off in using something like www.phpbb.com instead. Totally free forum software and works great.

PS. This question is asked quite frequently, and whenever you stumble across a forum, just look at the bottom of the pages, usually tells you what its based off of as most don't want to write theirs from scratch, rather use another one and customize to their needs.

Hi..

trickykid, I'd like to know how many people r involved in coding and development of this forum ?? ....I developed a small message board in ASP for my School project...but this one looks comprehensive, very beautifully designed and the best public forum on the internet! I've never come across an equally well-made public forum anywhere else...

......Hats off to people who'r doing such a wonderful job out there!

Give your thanks to Jeremy, he's pretty much the main and only person who does any coding for this forum. AFAIK though, david_ross helped out some with the wiki...

Cheers.
